Using Focusrite Clarett 8Prex with surface book (thunderbolt)

Hey guys,

I am trying to hook up my surface book with the 8prex using a thunderbolt cable. The website says the 8prex is now windows compatible, but unfortunately my surface book has a minidisplay port instead of a thunderbolt port. Is it possible to use thunderbolt with the surface book, or am I just doomed?

From the following link, it seems that the Surface Pro may be using Thunderbolt technology with a proprietary connector, and is not officially supported by Microsoft.
